Abbey Eldridge, RD Bio: Abbey is a pediatric renal dietitian at Children’s Hospital Colorado. She has worked with the adult kidney disease population since 2007, and switched to working in pediatrics a year ago. Abbey is on the local board for the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), and is actively involved with many of the NKF’s events to raise funds and awareness about kidney disease. Abbey is currently conducting research to find better ways to manage and treat bone disease in children with kidney disease. In her free time she enjoys racing in triathlons, including the full Ironman distance. National Kidney Foundation: The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is the largest, most effective and longstanding organization fighting kidney disease. We’ve been in continuous action for 65 years, supporting patients, caregivers, and professionals, and increasing awareness. Historically, kidney disease was not regarded as a major public health problem. Through the efforts of NKF, today kidney disease is being effectively treated as a serious condition. With skyrocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease worldwide, resulting in a corresponding increase in chronic kidney disease (CKD), our work is more important than ever. Our priority is the people we care about—those affected by CKD—and improving their lives through health screenings, research, education, and awareness.
